The personalised programs designed by Denitta are the best. When I injured my shoulders 3 years ago Active Pilates was my physio and peace of mind. The exercises and postural advice from Denitta was paramount in my healing process. Get to Active Pilates for your peace of mind.
Thanks Denitta and the team

Recover my fitness level after having bilateral hip replacements

I have been doing pilates with Denitta now for about 18 months after struggling to recover my fitness level after having bilateral hip replacements. She is kind and caring and tailors all the exercises to my specific needs which generally change each week. I would highly recommend this pilates studio to anyone.

Usually went to yoga, but this is so much better

After suffering back and knee problems thanks to old injuries and old age catching up with me, tried Pilates for the first time to help strengthen my ageing muscles and after a few months, what a difference its made. Usually went to yoga, but this is so much better. Can’t recommend this studio more highly. If you’ve never tried Pilates and always thought you’d give it a go, do yourself a favour and come here you won’t be disappointed and you’ll be well looked after:)

Active Pilates is a fantastic studio space that is equipped with top of the range equipment, very spacious and well maintained. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, professional & attentive. My sessions are tailor-made to suit my body and my requirements. Pilates is just one of the many services offered, fantastic massage studio, Lorna Jane clothing & also supported by doterra essential oils. Since commencing at Active Pilates I have learnt so much about my body and can see the changes and positive effects it has had on me. I honestly wish I had found them years ago!! Give Active Pilates a call you will not regret it!

Cornerstone of my ‘rehabilitation team’ – for osteoarthritis

Denitta is the cornerstone of my ‘rehabilitation team’ – for osteoarthritis of the hip – aiming to prevent the need for a hip replacement.

She is highly skilled and designs individual programs for your needs.  There is no ‘one size fits all’ mentality.  Each program is specific for you, and flexible to changes in your condition.

I saw 2 specialists 5 years ago who both recommended immediate hip replacement.  My hip couldn’t get any worse – stage IV OA with bone on bone, oedema and bits of lacerated cartilage floating in the joint capsule.  Needless to say, movement was difficult.

Under the expert guidance of Denitta, my overall mobility and functional range has improved beyond belief.

Whether for rehab or if you just want to improve your physical well being, I cannot recommend Denitta highly enough.

I now have core strength that I owe entirely to Active Pilates

Before meeting Denitta and starting on my pilates journey I had given up all hope of ever having strength back in my leg post knee surgery. Her skill not only gave me back the strength in my leg, but showed me that I had underestimated the ability of my entire body. I now have core strength that I owe entirely to Active Pilates. I recommend Denitta’s expertise to everyone, of all ages and fitness levels. Being a part of the Active Pilates family was one of the best decisions I ever made!

Ms Jodie

We have not felt this good in so many years!

Plagued with multiple health issues, lupus, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis and a host of other auto-immune disorders I decided to to choose an alternative path of healing that would eventually lead to discovering Pilates.  I had lived with pain for too many years so I was a bit daunted to if my body would cope.  I had nothing to loose and everything to potentially gain, so off I went starting with one day a week sessions and have not ever looked back!

My husband Kevin had been going to the Gym for 2 years to control Type 2 Diabetes and having one too many injuries through his workouts which would put him out for 2-3 weeks at a time.  I encouraged him to give Pilates a go.  He was astounded how Pilates through Denitta’s instruction began to build up core strength and awakening parts of his body that the gym wasn’t.

Denitta not only gives full focused attention to all of her clients, but she has something money can’t buy, empathy! Kevin and I thoroughly enjoy our twice a week sessions, we are both physically healthier & stronger in our bodies and calmer towards our business, life on the whole and each other than we have been for so many years!  Highly recommend Denitta and Active Pilates.

Pilates Rewarding Career

I worked with the guidance of Denitta Morris through my Diploma qualifying on Sept 15.  I trained with Denitta once a week on a personal level refining my movements, absorbing on a larger scale as I felt the exercises in my own body.  It was a great experience.  My observation hours allowed me to watch and take part as she herself taught clients.  As I became more equipped I worked the clients under her supervision, finally being able to program the clients in my own right.

I successfully work in the industry teaching mat classes and assisting clients in the studio environment in reformer classes and one to one in privates. I am also the Pilates instructor in a Physio clinic.

Pilates has become such a rewarding career for me seeing the change as people become stronger, feeling and seeing the difference as they progress. I do not only work with clients with issues but also clients who are looking for general well being, fitness and health so my scope is varied and interesting.

Continuing my education is important to me as I like been knowledgeable to assist my clients.

Dancing & Rock Climbing Rehabilitation

I have been attending Denitta’s classes for about five years now and my body would not be the same without them.

Having sustained many injures from my hobbies of dancing and rock climbing, the rehabilitation aspect of Denitta’s classes is invaluable.

My strength, stability and general body awareness have all improved exponentially thanks to her patient instruction.

Her vast knowledge of the human body allows her to adjust the exercises to any bodies individual challenges.  I would recommend her classes to everyone.

Laura Fiebig

Pilates will always be a part of my lifestyle

As a para medical worker I know the importance of health and well being.

Active Pilates makes this possible in a pleasant environment with good companionship as a bonus.

Pilates will always be a part of my lifestyle.

Cathy Meyer

Tailored Program & Wonderful Place of Learning

Since starting with Denitta doing Pilates my body is in a much better space, if you need a strong coach that encourages and and has clear goals in mind for your specific needs then this is the place for you.

Denitta tailors a program for each body then follows through with that plan….

A wonderful place of Learning and, enjoyment with great people


Chronic Lower Back Pain

I orginally went to Denitta for chronic lower back pain, that was about five years ago.

Now my back and for that matter everything else is doing very well and I enjoy two sessions a week.

I’ve become more aware of what my body is telling me, how it is designed to move and the knowledge how to improve it.

For me Pilates is a way of keeping my body in check for as long as I can.

Denitta: Unrelenting passion & strives for perfection

As a Pilates student I came to Denitta with very little knowledge and understanding, now through her Mentoring I am becoming a competent and confident teacher of the Pilates method.

Denitta has an unrelenting passion and always strives for perfection in everything that is Pilates.

As a client and student teacher I find my body and mind transforming into a stronger version of my former self…. “Strong body, strong mind”.
